At Development Academy we offer a range of management and leadership training courses to accelerate your career.
We teach tried and tested techniques and frameworks. The ability to manage and lead groups of people is critical for any company and will become increasingly important to you personally as you move through your career.
Our courses include.
All of our training courses begin by laying out the theory of a skill or technique so that you understand the background behind the idea. However, they very quickly move to how these tools can be used practically in day-to-day business life.
Good management is the backbone of all successful companies. Management means that goals and objectives are achieved through the efficient co-ordination and application of resources (capital, team members etc) to a goal.
Good effective management means that things get done well, efficiently and on time.
Leadership is setting a vision or direction for a group of people or a company. Leadership means there everyone in a team or organisation understands the future plans and strategy of the group that they are a part of and why achieving those plans is important.
Good leadership means that everyone knows where the group is heading and why.
As Peter Drucker said, ” Management is doing things right, leadership is doing the right things”.
Management and leadership are two sides of the same coin. No organisation can thrive without doing both well.
Good management without good leadership is like a ship with no rudder but a good engine. Good leadership without good management is like a ship with a working rudder but a broken engine. In neither case is the ship going to reliably get to where it needs to.
We also write about management and leadership on our blog.
